Olifants Rest Camp (Kruger National Park, Phalaborwa 1350) — this is one of the more prestigious camps in the Park with a rich history. A fully-equipped shop and a good restaurant sits perched higher above the gorge with sweeping panoramic views. Chalets on the river frontage are booked way in advance because they are so popular.
The camp offers guided tours down to the river and walking trails in the wilderness region (the Oliphant’s River Backpacking Trail). A real treat is an authentic African bush braai. There are two luxury guesthouses in the Oliphant’s Rest Camp, as well as two, three and four-roomed bungalows complete with en-suites. There are also two huts available that are wheel-chair friendly.
